Jennifer Gallagher, Social Science Library

Hi everyone, I’m Jennifer and I’m one of the two trainees at the Social Science Library.  We are now into our third week here and most of what we’re doing has been behind the scenes as we’re not yet on the issue desk until we’ve had our circulation training (something that will change later this week).  We’re kept very busy with shelving, book processing, photocopying, answering emails, making room bookings, checking reading lists, trying to deal with the post and where it goes…along with all the training and learning.  I feel very lucky to be working in such a large, busy, and well organised library.  It doesn’t matter if I can’t remember anything I’m told, because there is an extensive staff manual!   I’m really enjoying everything so far, and everyone has made us feel very welcome.  I look forward to what the next year brings.
